1965 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 SS Tribute
It's not just that this 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu has a terrific classic hardtop appearance. As you dig deeper, you'll see a stellar A/C interior, a performance stroker motor, and much more. So keep reading, because as you find out about more details, this restored coupe only gets better. This coupe has the perfect mix of history and investments (and has the receipts to back it up, too.) It was given a full rotisserie restoration completed in 2010, and they paid for quality. The 1965-correct shade of Evening Orchard is a distinguished choice and looks amazing when it the sunshine hits it. That's what happens when someone makes a solid investment in updating the paint with a modern clearcoat. And because this one has the cleaner lines of a Super Sport tribute, you really get to see the great creases of the iconic sheetmetal. The reason these Chevelles have remained so popular is because they represent the best of the era. It's a fresh design free from the clutter. So instead of tailfins, these had a sleek profile that accented its sportiness with the pillarless hardtop profile. Plus, the rear fenders have the Coke bottle-inspired gentle curves. And keeping with the tradition of great American brightwork, the wraparound chrome bumpers, grille, and lower rocker trim add plenty of shine. Adding to both the bright and subtitle performance attitude are the iconic Weld five-point wheels. Beautiful bucket seats complete with center console is exactly what you want when having proper '65 SS tribute. And getting the performance look right on this dark interior also meant an investment in new carpeting, door panels, and headliner during restoration. And as you look deeper, you'll even find features like the Dynamat insulation and upgraded speakers for the retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo with modern Bluetooth. So if this is starting to sound like the perfect car to share with family and friends, you're also going to love that they can all stay cool with R134a air conditioning. And while the interior is nicely upgraded, it never loses that vintage feeling that comes when you grab the classic thin steering wheel that gives you a clear view of the bright dash. And as you notice everything from the tach mounted in the center to the upgraded auxiliary gauge trio, it lets you know there's something special under the hood. This Chevelle was born at the beginning of the small block's dominance, and so it's great to lift the hood and see such an impressive powerplant. With the valve covers, upgraded pulleys, air topper, and even the radiator hose shining so bright, we dare you to find another component that could be polished. And there's a good reason why this shining motor looks like it's radiating power from within the engine bay. It's a 350 cubic inch V8 stroked to 383ci total. Plus, there's added go-fast goodies like a Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, aluminum heads, MSD ignition, and a growling dual exhaust. It feeds a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with 3,000 RPM stall converter to keep you in the optimal powerband. And this sends power to a stout 12-bolt rear with 3.73 gears and Positraction for proper takeoffs. But more than just a street machine, it has also been upgraded for usability with features like the serpentine belt system and a Ron Davis aluminum radiator with dual electric fans (it'll keep you cool in traffic even when the A/C is pumping.) Plus, that transmission also has highway-friendly overdrive. Add in power steering and power brakes, and this is a distinct classic that's both powerful and versatile. Complete with the restoration receipts, this is truly a cut-above classic that has been built with all the upgrades you would have done yourself. So the right vintage hardtop that's ready to run today is an impressive find, and you don't want to miss this deal. Call today!!!
